Our [Open Data and Semantic Web](http://blog.okfn.org/2009/08/05/open-data-and-the-semantic-web-workshop-london-13th-november-2009/) workshop is coming up next **Friday 13th November** in London, kindly sponsored by [Talis](http://www.talis.com/).
In preparation for the workshop, we have started a [Linking Open Data](http://ckan.net/group/lod) group on [CKAN](http://www.ckan.net), our open-source registry of open data, based on the new group feature [we announced last week](http://blog.okfn.org/2009/10/26/new-ckan-features/). We currently have **83** Linked Data packages listed, which you can see at:
If you know of any datasets we should add, please consider [adding them to CKAN](http://www.ckan.net)! If you’d like to become an administrator for the LOD group, please [get in touch](http://okfn.org/contact).
We have also converted all of the CKAN data to RDF and loaded it onto Talis’s [Connected Commons](http://blogs.talis.com/n2/cc) platform (which was [launched earlier this year at OKCon 2009](http://blog.okfn.org/2009/04/01/talis-launches-connected-commons-for-open-data-at-okcon-2009/)).
